DEXTER
BENEFIT SPAGHETTI DINNER BEING PLANNED FOR KASEE WILSON: A few months ago, during a routine physical it was discovered that Kasee Wilson had a rare blood disease called Myelodysplastic Syndrome, or MDS. It was following Kasee’s graduation from Maine Maritime Academy and the start of a new career when MDS was discovered. The only cure for MDS was a bone marrow transplant which he completed on August 11th and is currently doing well. He will spend weeks in Boston with much recovery time. It may be up to a year before he will be cleared to work. The many medical expenses and trips back and forth to Boston is creating a significant financial burden on Kasee and his family.
A benefit dinner will be held on Sunday, October 19th from 4 to 7 pm. The Dinner will be prepared by Giovanni’s owners Charlie and Lori Malatesta at the old Giovanni’s/TJ’s location, currently Cooper’s on the Trail at 612 North Dexter Road (Route 23), Dexter. Dinner will include a beverage, entrée, bread and dessert. Meal cost will be $12 for adults and $7 for children under the age of twelve.
